Five Reasons Why Wax Melts Are So Popular

A fragrance revolution has started. In the world of aromatic indulgence, wax melts have become the latest sensation, captivating scent enthusiasts worldwide. These compact blocks of scented wax, when warmed, release captivating fragrances that permeate every corner of your home. If you haven’t yet jumped on the wax melt bandwagon, it’s time to discover why these delightful aromatic wonders are a must-have for any fragrance aficionado. In this article, we’ll delve into the five biggest reasons why wax melts are so popular and why you need to start using them to transform your space into a fragrant oasis.

What are wax melts?

But first, what are wax melts? First created by candle-makers as a way to use up leftover wax, wax melts are small, scented pieces of wax designed to be melted in a wax burner. One wax melt is placed in the dish of the burner and a four-hour tealight is lit beneath it. The heated wax will melt and release its fragrance into the surrounding space. Wax melts can also be used with electric burners, a great option if you can’t have an open flame in your home.

Wax melts typically come in various shapes and sizes. At Teelin, all of our wax melts are individually hand-poured by our family using reusable silicone moulds. We keep our batches small to keep the standards high. We use a blend of coconut and rapeseed waxes, which not only delivers an exceptional scent throw but is sustainable. As a finishing touch, we add specially selected botanicals to bring that extra flair.

Why are wax melts so popular?

  1. Unparalleled scent throw

The first reason to fall in love with wax melts is their unmatched scent throw. Compared to candles, these mini wonders release a stronger and longer-lasting aroma, even after multiple uses, that envelopes your space in a fragrant embrace. Wax melts also distribute their scents more evenly, ensuring your entire room is imbued with their captivating aroma.

  1. Easy to use and change

Using wax melts is a breeze, making them a convenient choice for busy individuals seeking instant fragrance gratification. Simply place a wax melt into your wax burner, light the tealight, and relax as the captivating aroma fills your home. There’s no worrying about trimming wicks or monitoring melt pools. Once you’re done enjoying the scent, extinguishing the tealight allows the wax to solidify. It can then be reused or easily swapped out for a new melt, ensuring a hassle-free experience.  

  1. Affordable luxury

If you’re looking to infuse your home with delightful scents without breaking the bank, wax melts are the perfect solution. Compared to other home fragrance options, wax melts are generally a more cost-effective way to fragrance your home for long periods of time. One of Teelin’s wax melts can provide up to twelve hours of scent, making them a long-lasting and budget-friendly choice. With four melts in each box, that’s up to forty-eight hours of captivating aroma for just £4.75!

  1. The sustainable choice

Sustainability is a growing concern for many individuals, and wax melts offer a greener alternative to traditional candles. At Teelin, we only use plant-based waxes, and our wax melts are crafted using a biodegradable blend of coconut and rapeseed waxes. The rapeseed comes from the EU, and the coconut is sourced from deforestation-free smallholder farms in the Philippines under schemes that develop the local communities.

With no wicks or glass containers to dispose of, wax melts also create significantly less waste than candles. However, at Teelin, we take sustainability a step further. Our wax melts are crafted using reusable silicone moulds, eliminating the need for single-use plastic snap bars, which are the industry norm. Moreover, our packaging is thoughtfully designed to be fully recyclable, contributing to our commitment to tread lightly on our planet.
